A statement released by the Clarence House has confirmed that the 71 year old royal has been diagnosed with coronavirus.
“The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus,” it said. “He had been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.” “The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus. In accordance with the government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.”
“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing. It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus from owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks,” the statement said.
